New Hang Seng and Singapore Straits Times Records!


Asia-Pacific Map

According to Bloomberg, Hong Kong's Hang Seng index rose above 19,000 for the first time, and Singapore's Straits Times index posted a new record!

The article states that despite a cooler than expected Chinese economy Hong Kong was able to post strong gains which pushed it into record territory.

Elsewhere in Asia-Pacific though, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Malaysia and Indonesia fell, led by resource stocks such as BHP Billiton in Australia and JR East, Japan's largest railway operator.
